    Can confirm. Was with him and Nover at the Final Four in Indy. Boy could throw down. Not in the same league as Uwe though. Blab & Dakich set records that will never be equaled.

      Actress Sondra Locke has passed away from bone & breast cancer at the age of 74. Apparently she died 11/3, but her death wasn't announced to the public until yesterday. She was Clint Eastwood's partner from about 1976 until 1989 and starred in several of his movies during that era, including The Outlaw Josie Wales, Bronco Billy, The Gauntlet, and Every Which Way But Loose.
      Winners see success and want to climb up to its level. Losers see success and want to drag it down to their own.

            It was actually just a joke, hence the smiley.

            • Penny Marshall, Laverne of Laverne and Shirley has passed away at age 75.

              Penny Marshall, the amazing actress, comedian and director has died ... TMZ has learned.

              Marshall died Monday night at her Hollywood Hills home. We've learned the cause of death was complications from diabetes.

              Penny's first recurring role was playing Myrna Turner on "The Odd Couple," which was directed by her brother. She also appeared on "Happy Days" with Cindy Williams, and they became famous from their spin-off sitcom, "Laverne & Shirley." It became a monster hit in 1976 and ran for 8 seasons. Her character's moniker -- the "L" for Laverne on her sweater -- became one of the most famous logos in television.

                      • Heartbreaking news about Tyler, but my goodness, what a fighter. How many of us could learned a thing or two from this courageous young man? The last days of his life, he's writing a book in order to try and raise a million dollars for cancer research.

                        Boiler Up! and God Bless you Tyler Trent.

                        • RIP Tyler. A difficult yet courageous & inspirational life so well lived. No doubt from hearing his interviews and testimony that Boiler Up! has a different meaning for him now.

                                          This story tore up my entire family. His battle was so inspiring to us all. It came as a shock that he perished so soon after we all became familiar with his story. RIP young fella and prayers to the family. Sad news indeed.

                                            He was the notional MVP of NDs 13th win when Purdue derailed OSU's season. That game was almost the highlight of the year for me and the way the Purdue fans got behind him I think that could only happen in college football/sport. RIP.

                                                Not only did Purdue get behind him, but many others. Scott VanPelt interviewed him and shortly after, he co-hosted SVP's show for a day. He was also featured on ESPN and I think ABC News. I'll see if I can track down how much money he was able to raise in such a short time.

                                                • Bob Einstein, a comedian, actor and two-time Emmy winner best known for his work on "Curb Your Enthusiasm," has died at 76, his representative confirmed to USA TODAY.

                                                  Einstein is probably best known to fans as Marty Funkhouser, creator and star Larry David's friend, on "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

                                                  Einstein is also well known for creating the satirical stuntman character Super Dave Osborne, bringing the character's comedic appeal to various variety shows and late night comedy shows from the 1970s to the present day.

                                                  • My heart breaks for a kid like Tyler. Yes, death is sad, and cancer is vile for all those who suffer. But there is something about when it takes such a young, exciting life that really hits hard to those of us who didn't even know him. Seeing those clips of him during the OSU week, after it, him on SvP, being flown to Nashville, I would tear up every time.

                                                    Gone way too soon.

He's someone's husband, father and grandfather and will be missed. With the media coverage recently and given Tyler was a 20 year old young man that didn't get to live his life, I just found it a little surprising.

                                                                          https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/02/enter...ead/index.html

                                                                          • I'm gonna chime in on Mean Gene. Tyler Trent is a beautifully sad story, but the story isn't necessarily close to everyone. I'm sure everyone has someone that is close to them that has battled cancer at some point, sure, but does that mean it's personal to you?

                                                                            Gene Okerlund represents a nostalgic figure for many kids that grew up in the 80s. I can remember watching WWF's Saturday Night Main Event with my pop and brother back in the day, cheering for Hulk Hogan and we'd try to roll dad over to get a pin during commercials. My dad and I don't always see eye to eye, and we have few things in common, but those are some of my fondest memories growing up. It was something we could bond over, and Mean Gene was a part of that experience. Okerlund was probably one of, if not THE, greatest interviewer in the realm of professional wrestling. He was the go to guy for all backstage segments. He was a perfect foil for outlandish characters like Macho Man, Ultimate Warrior, and Hogan.

                                                                            So conventional wisdom says that a Tyler Trent passing should garner more comments than a Mean Gene maybe, but for some of us that grew up watching wrestling it may illicit other emotions that hit closer to home.
